    It's not like they could vote for a crazy demegog who incites people to violence and seperates kids from their parents and tells lies all the time... Oh, wait.
    But seriously, they don't have that many opinions on the ballot so why not let them vote for 1 of the 2 candidates.
    They can't vote for themselves or another convicted criminal.
    Are they worried about the ex-felons will vote for the wrong politician that's already on the ballot?
    Doesn't make any sense.

    Florida returned voting rights to felons this past midterm...an estimated 1.4 million felons received their voting rights back. My point being - Florida has roughly a fifth of the felons out of the entire U.S. Duuuval for life lmao two of those videos were from Jacksonville hahah I fuckin love my state so much.

    How the fuck can you tax people and not let them vote? I say if you're going to disenfranchise somebody, they don't need to pay taxes either.
    Want their money? You have to accept their ballot too.

    I think white collar crimes are the only ones that shouldn't be able to vote.... a politician isn't going to campaign with the slogan "I'll make rape legal", but a politician may be running to make white collar crimes less illegal.... something to ponder

    Honestly I can't even believe the USA is a real country. How could a place that acts the way the USA supposed does even function?

    Good news! The amendment passed! Florida is slightly less shitty and is slowly overcoming Andrew Jackson's curse

    Never, EVER say anything is "the stupidest thing about Florida", because, I guarantee you, you will be out-Floridad. Only God knows the stupidest thing about Florida, and that's good - I'm sure the rest of us could never handle it.

    I think only violent felons should be barred from voting, but Florida literally allowed all felons to vote. Nickolas Cruz (that school shooter that is in prison) literally registered.
